what type of dimmer switch is it.

Leviton... | Answered on Jan 09, 2010

If there is an electrical specialty store in your area, i would remove the switch and take it there. They may be able to help in either replacing or rebuilding it. That sort of control is not difficult to recreate, but it is an uncommon feature. A good electronics tech can show you how and get you the parts to do it. i am NOT talking about Radio Shack. i mean a mom and pop shop that specializes in electrical and electronics.

i hope this helps

Questions to answer so I can answer/resolve your problem:

1) Is this a rotary style dimmer?
2) Is it a toggle or slider type?
3) Is this on a 3-way circuit (that has 2 or more switches that can turn the lights on or off)
4) Is this on a single switch circuit?
5) Is this a brand new dimmer switch?
6) Is this an old dimmer switch?
7) Are the light bulbs in the spots regular incandesant or halogen bulbs?
8) Are the light bulbs in the spots CFL (compact flouresent lamps)?

With this information, I can tell you what the problem is:

If you answer "YES" to #1, and or #6 then the dimmer is faulty and should be replaced.

If you answer "YES" to #8, then you have the wrong dimmer for the bulb type, as CFL's require a specific dimmer type in order to dim them.

Please provide some more info and maybe we can help you figure out what's wrong.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

One side of the switch has Brass screws, and the other has nickle screws. there is usually a small brass bridge between the upper, and lower switch screws on the brass screw side. if you are feeding both from a common power source leave the little brass bridge in place, and screw on of the screws in all the way. Put the energised wire under the other brass screw. Bare copper wire goes to the green screw. The power will be transferred to the nickle screws through the corresponding switch. put the wire to the fan on one, and the light on the other. Presto.

not familier with this model but yes sounds like its wired incorrectly, usually on a 2 way switch you will only have 1 live comming in, it will feed common in, the bottom 2 will connect too the bottom 2 on the other switch in opposite order then the common on the other switch will fed the light.

No need to break the tab... that' on the power IN side of the switch..
You only need one power in (in most cases).
The power outs are separated already.. one goes to your first load and the other will go to the second.
The white wires are your common and are hooked together with the other whites in the box... don't hook them to the switch.
Hope this get's ya all connected... let me know if you need more assistance.

o1-yl4k5oyek5xm1qpgfgeefhx0-2-5.png Check battery connections. Could be battery is failing... battery voltage should be minimum 12.5 VDC when genset not running. Remove battery and have it tested.

Could be the switch (see inverter module), the stepper motor (engine), or the inverter module.

There are a lot of advantages to installing a garbage disposal in your kitchen. Here are just a few of them.

1. It saves time
First off, it saves time. There's nothing more annoying than having to scrape off the little bits of leftovers of every single dish one by one before you wash them. With a garbage disposal unit, you don't have to.

2. Less wastage
As your unit will break up the leftovers into tiny pieces, there is less wastage to worry about and your trash can will stay empty for longer.

3. More hygienic
By breaking up your garbage so it passes through your plumbing, little bits of food won't get stuck in your pipes. This is more hygienic and will help you to avoid nasty odors

4. Better for your plumbing
Obviously, this is the main benefits. The best garbage disposal units will ensure you have no more blockages! Click here for more information.

5. Save money
Even though you have to pay for the unit itself, you'll save money on food bags, the costs of which add up over years of use.

Too much connected load. The 4000 watt rating is only for short term loads. Generally you should not exceed 80% of the rating for long term connected loads.

You haven't given much information that allows anyone to help you, but it seems that you are having a problem with your boat. What sort of boat is it? How many batteries does it have? What kind of battery switches does it have? How is the generator wired to provide 12VDC power anyway? Ordinarily, your generator is providing 120VAC. The only 12VDC power that the generator provides is possibly from the attached alternator that is charging the generator's battery. Does the generator start from it's own battery? Does the generator battery also serve your interior loads? (that would be unusual) Have your messed around with your batteries or battery switches lately? Likewise, shore power is 120VAC, so the only way that could be producing 12VDC would be through a battery charger. Without more information, it seems that there is a problem with your "house" battery, battery switch(es), battery wiring or battery connections. If you have a multimeter, I would suggest tracking down the sources of 12VDC power to find where you have 12v DC and where you don't. That should give you some clue as to where the problem is located. Most likely, your house (interior) battery is dead, but when you run your generator or connect to shore power, you have 120VAC power and your battery charger(s) are turned on and providing 12VDC to your interior loads. Good luck.

Be concerned for lamp wattage and volts so the lamp cord is selected according to wire gage and volts.
Watts = volts x amps is formula, transposable to find the missing value.
For a better answer, give the wattage of the floor lamp ( watts per lamp ), how many lamps (gloves or bulbs ), and voltage used.
